TORONTO, May 12 /CNW/ - Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX-V: AZX) (Frankfurt: A9D) reports today that Niogold Mining Corporation has mobilised a drill rig to complete a ten hole, 2,500 m drill programme on Alexandria's Siscoe East project in Val d'Or, Quebec.

The drilling programme will test several electromagnetic and induced polarization anomalies, interpreted as potential shear-vein zones along the north contact area of the Bourlamaque Batholith.

The Siscoe East property is located on the northwest side of the city of Val d'Or, around and between the past-producing Siscoe Mine and Sullivan Mine. The Siscoe Mine, Val d'Or's first and highest grade mine, produced some 852,000 ounces of gold between 1929 and 1949, at an average grade of 9.22 g/t Au. The Sullivan Mine, located southeast of the Siscoe East Property in the Bourlamaque Batholith, produced 1.13 million ounces of gold at an average grade of 7.65 g/t Au between 1938 and 1968, principally from five parallel veins which trend onto Alexandria's property.

A previous drilling programme by Niogold in 2009 intersected 43.67 g/t Au over 1.9 m, thought to be an extension of the Sullivan vein system onto Alexandria's property (See Press Release, August 7, 2009).

The Siscoe East Property consists of 110 claims governed by two agreements between Niogold and Alexandria. Alexandria has earned a 70% interest on 37 claims previously held by Niogold, and Niogold is in the process of earning a 50% interest in 59 claims owned by Alexandria, by completing the following: issuing to Alexandria 650,000 common shares (completed) and expending a total of $750,000 on exploration on the property ($245,000 remains).

In other matters, the Company has granted 250,000 incentive stock options exercisable at a price of $0.19 for a period of 3 years to an officer of the Company.

The results presented in this press release with regard to Alexandria'a Siscoe East property are exploratory in nature and have been reviewed by Dr. Eric Owens, PGeo, QP.
